This is one of the absolute best shows on television and I’m glad to see it is back. It’s history of the US and is depicted fairly well. The acting is very believable and at times I feel I’m in the time period. It’s just so well done. Thank you and please get a 3rd season!

I have enjoyed watching Bomb Girls and am so excited to hear there will be a season 2 with the episodes extending to 12 issues. I hope other people are liking it also so it stays on. Well acted and interesting subject matter. I don’t have a favorite because they all shine equally.
